A large growing species of Corydoras, the Pantanal or C005 Cory originates in the clear water wetlands known as the Pantanal in Southern Brazil and Bolivia. Adult fish are one of the most attractive of all Corydoras, with adult males in breeding colors showing a remarkable iridescent spotted pattern. Like most Cory catfish, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. Because of their larger adult size, Pantanal Corys make for great bottom feeders or dithers in aquariums with medium South or Central American Cichlids or other predatory fish which aren’t large enough to try to make a meal of them.
